Thrombosis is the condition when there is damage inside a blood vessel and blood cells stick together and form a clot. There are different types of thrombosis. Common ones include:
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). DVT mainly happens in your leg or pelvis. It is deep within a muscle.
  • Pulmonary Embolism (PE). It can block the flow of blood in your lungs. It can also harm other organs because your lungs can't supply them with enough oxygen.
